You didn’t think that I forgot, did you? I created a Good Things Jar early into 2015 and a lot of amazing things have happened! You can see the small start that I had here. My jar has become full and I cannot believe that a lot of amazing things have happened.

I decided to create a Good Things Jar for myself because it has kept me motivated and made me smile through some tough times this year. I also think that as a person who has dealt with a lot of depression, self-doubt, and all around beating myself up for things I cannot control, it has been a huge help. What is considered a good thing to someone may not be the same as someone else. This is like a diary that is a constant reminder of the good that happened each year, not the bad. Below is an overview of what happened to me and below that is a list of all of the great things.
